Lift Investigation of Airfoil with Flaps
In the paper a lift calculation of a two-dimensional airfoil with a plain flap and Krueger flap is investigated. Numerical-analytical method (NAM) is used to predict the flow field around this combination. In order to calculate the complex velocity in the flow field, the complex variable function theory is employed. NAM based on the joint application of conformal mapping and the discrete vortex method (DVM). The paper presents a brief description of the NAM and some results of the lift calculations of the airfoil with the plain flap and Kruger flap. Comparison of the calculation results with the theoretical data of other authors showed a good agreement.
